Registration open for free Girls Who Code 2021 Savannah program

Free Girls Code Savannah Chatham County


Girls Who Code Savannah is back! The free youth program will return with eight free virtual workshops starting Feb. 13 2021. Register online here.

Girls Who Code Clubs are meant for girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models, and use Computer Science to change the world. Volunteer instructors provide a learning environment where young women are introduced to fundamental principles, technologies, and skills associated with computer programming and Internet technologies.

When young women join a Club, they are able to learn from fun and simple online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities and learn about inspiring role models. They then work in teams and use code to design and build a Girls Who Code Project that solves real-world problems.

Clubs are for young women attending public middle school (grades 6-8) in Chatham County. Whether your child is a beginner or a computer master, she is invited to join the movement. In order to participate, youth must have parent/guardian permission, a computer with internet connectivity, and access to Wi-fi.

When: The Club involves eight virtual sessions, which will meet every two weeks on Saturdays at 2:30PM.
Feb. 13, Feb, 27, March 13, March 27, April 10, April 24, May 8, May 22 2021.

Space for this program is limited. Therefore, Girls Who Code Savannah asks that those interested in participating make a commitment to attending all eight sessions. If an interested party cannot be present for all sessions due to other commitments or conflicts, the program volunteers ask that you please wait until the next round of sessions is offered and allow someone who can fully participate in the program an opportunity for acceptance in this round of sessions.

Where: Workshops will be held virtually via Google Classroom. Information regarding the Google Classroom and specific sessions will be sent after registration.
